WHAT DO WE DESERVE?

See my new Roper's! These boots are made for ..................going to the casinos. Whoohoo!
My refirgerator is a blank slate before Christmas and then pictures out of the cards start going up. Thought I'd take this picture before I take them down. I love cards with photos.


My life is wonderful. I want to pinch myself half the time to make sure I'm not dreaming. The last eight years of blissful retirement cause me to ponder how I could have done anything to deserve this life.

Today's "I Love Your Blog" link inspired my thinking on our retirement. Be sure and click the link to read her post that spells it all out very well.

Yesterday's link was to Loving Annie's if you missed it.

  1. I thought my wife was the only one who decorated our fridge over Christmas.

    I guess its a phenomenon--or a movement.

  6. Maybe I should stop searching for a job and just retire.

    I could shop for casino boots and decorate my fridge with cool pics. You make it look like so much fun! ;)

  7. It looks like I'm retiring whether I want to or not. This is not good.

  9. Ok, when Chelle and I were designing your VP bank attire, I never would have dreamed walking into your closet and finding a pair of ROPERS!
    Wow, you are a true country-fied lady now! They are a great looking pair of boots! Hope they bring you luck at the.... casino!

  10. Hi! You mentioned not coming by the blog anymore because you're fed up with politics, but that was my FAITH BLOG for Sundays!!
    We don't always cover politics..I'll miss you and am sorry I haven't been here more lately...my computer keeps kicking me off line for no reason and I'm barely hanging in with blog work! But, we're supposed to get someone in this week!
    Thanks for having come by...xxx

  11. Oh I can't wait until I am able to retire as well. I'm 62 and it will be at least 3 years before I can. I treasure the dreams of just doing what I want.

    Blessings to you and your family..

  13. Cute boots!
    I like cards with photos too, also. I love seeing the photos of family and friends that maybe I don't get to see in person very often.
    Ann, you deserve this wonderful life you are living.
    You didn't always have it so blissful, and now you are enjoying life to the fullest with the love of your life.
    :-)
